Abstract

The adiabatic potential energy curves and the static dipole moment curves of the low-lying singlet and triplet electronic states in the representation 2s+1Λ(+/-) of the five alkali chloride molecules (LiCl, NaCl, KCl, RbCl and CsCl) have been investigated via ab initio calculations using the state averaged complete active space self consistent field followed by the Multi-reference single and double configuration interaction method with Davidson correction CASSCF/(MRCI + Q). For the molecules under consideration, the spectroscopic constants T e, R e, ω e and B e, the dipole moment μ e, and the dissociation energy D e have been calculated for the bound states along with the percentage ionic character f ionic around the equilibrium position of the ground state. Moreover, the transition dipole moment curves of the X1+-(2)1+ and X1+-(1)1Π transitions have been investigated for the five alkali chloride molecules. A rovibrational calculation was carried out using the canonical functions approach in order to determine the rovibrational constants E v, B v and D v and the abscissas of the turning points R min and R max for the investigated bound states.
